Figuring Out the New OL

ATHENS – Georgia fans and coaches have spent the past few days wondering just how the Bulldogs' offensive line will be reshuffled in the wake of a season-ending injury to starting left tackle Trinton Sturdivant.

One popular option among fans involves moving right tackle Kiante Tripp across the line, but Tripp said that hasn't happened yet.

The 6-foo-6 sophomore said he has taken just a few snaps at left tackle since the injury, but if coaches choose to make the change, he'll be ready.

"I played left in high school, they switched me up left and right in high school, so they can switch me up here," Tripp said. "It really doesn't matter."

Cordy Glenn, Clint Boling, Josh Davis and Vince Vance have also been considered for the role, though Richt said he likely won't make any final decision for a few more days.

While Tripp said his teammate's injury was a devastating blow, both on and off the field, he also said the depth of talent Georgia has on its line will make the situation easier.

"Losing somebody as good as Trinton, not just as a teammate, but as a friend, I just hope he gets better soon," Tripp said. "I was with him about two hours after practice, just spending time with him and his brother. I think he's going to be alright, and the team's going to be alright, too."
